Traffic police in India find an unlikely medium to help them issue tickets.

New Delhi’s traffic police have found a new way to issue tickets; they have created a page on Facebook where its ‘fans’ (read: motorists plying on Delhi roads) can post images of vehicles violating traffic rules. The cops then determine if the violation was legit and issue a ticket based on the vehicle’s number plate. So far, they have issued over 600 tickets by monitoring their Facebook page. Whether the initiative is abused by people looking for retribution needs to be seen.
